> Mind you, I don't mean about everything, I was just talking about therapy.
Oh yeah I know.
> It sounds like you're a bit like me in that you not only have to trust that what you say will not be used against you, but that you (and I - maybe I'm projecting??) need to also trust the reaction.
> Like - if someone close to you is sympathetic it would be believable. But too much sympathy from someone that only knows you because of what you tell him ..... well - if you can't trust that the sympathy is genuine how can you trust anything else that comes out. (that was the 'royal' you, not you in particular)
> Does that make sense, or should I dig myself in deeper?
You never dug yourself. I was really curious...i find I am learning alot recently about myself that I maybe dont want to know but probably should know.
> Of course, sympathy from (and to) babblers you have a relationship with can be real. Realer than therapy in my case.
It makes a huge difference what the relationship is.
